So today we tried some logical deduction. Children like pancakes. Children like chocolate chips. Children like Kool-Aid. So chocolate chip pancakes with red (cherry) Kool-Aid powder should be awesome, right?
Now we have a great and easy pancake recipe that has been in our family for generations…ok, for about two weeks, but that’s not the point, it’s great!
So you will need:
- 1 cup of all-purpose flour
- 1 tbsp sugar
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 cup milk
- 1 egg
- 2 tbsp oil
The instructions are easy: put everything in a bowl and mix it through, we use a manual hand-mixer, since it gives less splatter. As deviation to the standard recipe we put one packet of cherry Kool-Aid into the mix and it smelled great, gave it a nice colour, so was very promising!
Once we had it at the desired consistency, we used a regular trigger ice cream scoop as a measure for the pancakes, which gives about a third of the regular standard pan, which makes them nicely manageable, Nico added some chocolate chips to them and off we went.
As you can see, we were trying out for a Valentine’s Day theme with heart-shaped moulds and pans and things went good, everything went the same way as regular pancakes, even though the consistency seemed a little tougher. The excitement kept building, we put our forks through the pancake, put it into our mouth and…*pouf* excitement gone in a flash and we understood why Nico did not show any interest in even trying it… The whole thing tasted sour, gummy and even the chocolate chips tasted off.
